  • What worked well?

Well alot, we have well planned the event and it went successful. First of all we were able to gather getting to 50 participants from our community, most of which are new to the Wikimania. Meaning it's their first time. It has been a journey to remember. We were able to watch the grant launch party and also participated in many event online with our participant's.

  • What did not work so well?

Well being it our first time we have some certain problem which by the help of the organisers and the NCPUG team we were able to overcome. We have problem with light during the video shot which was rectified. We also have challenges. With transportation due to inflation and transportation fair increasement.

We also have an excess in attendance that we did not expect we have to make an instant arrangements to suit the participants at the event. Which at the end it all ended well and happily.
